I have been meaning to  to write about the Grocery Stores in Marina Del Rey, CA. I had to stop first and write about the demographics and population before. It is hard to believe that in this coastal community of Marina del Rey,( 8,000+ in Marina Proper or 18,000+ in 90292 zip code) there are so many Grocery Stores.First I must let you know I love to cook, therefore I am passionate about having good and fresh produce. I am a firm believer the meal you prepare is only as good as the ingredients. The better the ingredience the better the meal.So let me begin: Gelson's is located at  13455 Maxella Ave,Marina Del Rey,CA 90292 Tel.310.306.2952 They have a fantastic cheese selection, their fruits and vegetables  seem hand picked. Their prepared food is fresh.The store is spotless. The servers...

What prompted me to give  our readers more information about the Marina was the fact that I wrote about restaurants and was about the write about the Grocerie Stores. I am sure the readers were wondering how large is the Marina population? What are the Geographic Boundaries. Why are there so many great Restaurants and why so many Grocerie Stores.So here you have it. The coastal community of Marina del Rey, CA is locted in the center of Los Angeles' Westside between Venice Beach and Playa del Rey. Marina del Rey is about 800+ acres, of which half is under water. After researching it I discovered that it was man made in the late 1950's. The general borders include the area west of Lincoln Boulevard, east of Via Dolce, north of Ballona Creek and south of Washington Boulevard and the Pacifi...

If you are new to the Marina or are considering relocating. Remember it is mostly about the good life, healty food and sunshine.The beach has it's own culture, relaxed dress code, it is not the  Century City or Downtown business suits crowd that you see.( more then likely they moved here to relax after a hectic workday and you never know by their clothing)Here is another good reason. The Mercedes' Cuban Grill. It is located at 14 Washington Blvd, Marina Del Rey CA 90292 Phone 310.577-0035.The Menu consist of great seafood, meats and vegetarian options. If you sit outside at the open patio, you can watch the colorful beach traffic moving back and forth (since you are only 500ft from the Beach) If you sit inside,  then there is a pleasant experience and you truly begin to focus on the foo...

The Media ( I include Newspapers, Television as well as the Internet), has been bombarding every one with how bad the Real Estate market is. I have been telling everyone who was willing to listen , the situation is not as bad as the media presents. I have also emphasized that Real Estate is not regional or national, rather it is Local. Consequently people have asked me to back up my statement.With that said I went into the Multiple Listing Service's Data base(MLS-CLAW). I took a snapshot of June 28,2008 to July 28,2008 and then from July 28, 2008 to August 28, 2008.So lets look at the numbers for Marina Del Rey :June-July (30 Day period) there were 16 Condominiums that SOLDJuly-August (30 Day period) there were 19 Condominiums that SOLDAs of today there are 36 Condominium that are Pendi...

I have frequented Cafe del Rey many times. I enjoy their innovative cuisine. Even though I live in the Marina I continue to admire Cafe del Rey's spectacular marina view as well. It is a great place to go for a romantic cocktail by the fire, or for Sunday brunch as well as any social gathering or simply to have a wonderfull meal wheather that is lunch or dinner. I have conducted business meetings in their coctail lounge. It is truly a dining experience.Zagat(2008)  calls it "Superb" French-California cuisine. Suprises first-time visitors to this Marina del Rey "favoret"...."unsurpassed";"gracious" service tops off what many consider the most "romantic" "gastronomic experience" in the area.Check out their website at http://www.cafedelreymarina.com  take a virtual tour.  Phone:310.823.639...
